The live-action adaptation of the popular anime was confirmed back in 2018 but the cast was not announced until the following year. Although the Cowboy Bebop series began production in 2019, filming had to be put on hold when Cho suffered a hand injury in October of the same year.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 would further delay production but filming finally wrapped on the first season in March 2021. Luckily, we only need to wait a few more months to see Spike, Faye, and Jet in action.

But is there a chance that we'll see the Cowboy Bebop trailer soon? There are speculations that the first teaser will be dropped soon now that we have our first photos from the highly anticipated series. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

Cowboy Bebop also stars Alex Hassell as Vicious and Elena Satine as Julia. The live-action series will consist of 10 episodes and premiere on Netflix on November 19, 2021.
